Getting in the Groove

As we make our way to or back to school, think about exploring:

  • Physical Exercise
    • Something as simple as taking a daily walk around campus could help you get back into the swing of things much quicker
  • Regular Sleep Schedule
    • The sooner you begin going to bed at a reasonable time and getting up earlier, the sooner you’ll stop singing the post-summer blues and be ready for your studies.
  • Healthy Eating
    • By making an effort to start eating healthier foods once you arrive/return, you’ll gradually find yourself feeling more alert and invested in your education.
  • Routines
    • By diving head first back into your old or new routine of attending classes and fulfilling those academic responsibilities on a regular basis, you can steadily gain all the motivation you might have lost over the summer.
  • Sense of Responsibility
    • Learning how to rely on yourself again can definitely help in reigniting your passion for living and learning.
  • Sense of Self-Gratitude
    • While getting a college education is immeasurable, there are points during the journey when you may feel overwhelmed by this path. Remember to take a moment to realize how much you truly have to be grateful for.
    • At the top of your list should be the fact you’re a college student who has the opportunity to follow your passion and pursue your dream career.
